Bethesda Softworks' post-apocalyptic open-world RPG returns with an improved setting, an enhanced crafting system, and thousands of lines of dialogue in Fallout 4. The action takes place in and around Boston roughly 200 years after a nuclear holocaust, with gamers assuming the role of the last survivor of a large fallout shelter known as Vault 111. Upon emerging from their shelter, players confront a devastated landscape where various factions battle for control of small settlements, and the wilderness teems with dangerous creatures, violent robots, mutated monsters, and deadly radiation. Gamers begin by creating their character, choosing from either a male or female vault survivor, and then customizing seven different S.P.E.C.I.A.L. skills. They are then free to roam the entire landscape as they please, meeting a variety of interesting characters, completing tasks, collecting bottle caps as currency, and acquiring useful items and weapons. Players can choose to interact with the world from a first- or third-person perspective, and combat once again mixes real-time action with turn-based elements in the form of the V.A.T.S. system, which lets gamers use action points to slow time and target specific areas of a foe's body. Fallout 4 introduces the ability to automatically perform critical hits, followed by a cooldown period, and for the first time in a Bethesda game, the player character can speak. Gamers can also collect materials to build their own settlements, complete with water, electricity, vegetation, outside vendors, and security measures.
